mike, back to you. thank you, monika. 6:45 right now. chances are your christmas tree looks kind of nice right now. it is going to start getting brown in a few days, however and prince george's county is going to make it easy for residents to recycle those trees. to explain how, we're joined this morning by environmental planner from the county, bob renning. thanks for joining us. what do you need to do before you bring it to the curb? >> make sure it is an unadorned christmas tree. take off the stand, the lights, the ornaments, tinsel. >> that seems like common sense. do people put it on the curb? >> oh, yeah, we collect a lot of christmas lights. >> which can cause a problem. >> the trees get ground up and chipped at a facility. to go through there with the lights on, it would mess up the process. >> first and foremost, take everything off the tree before you put it out. there are several places where you can recycle it. do you have a curbside program. are there other things as well?
